Prolonged Economic Slump Forces Long-time Main Street Retailer, B. Wright Limited, to Sell Entire Line of Men’s Clothing

ZIONSVILLE, Ind. – While praising the community for “many years of incredible support,” the owner of B. Wright Limited said today the local retail will sell its entire line of men’s apparel in a sale that will begin next Wednesday.

“I can’t say enough about how well Zionsville has treated us. We couldn’t have been in a better town,” said Brian Wright, whose family has owned the store since 1968.

The store’s inventory sale will begin next Wednesday. The store, 140 S. Main St., will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. weekdays, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Saturday and 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Sunday during the sale. Wright said that he hopes to continue the alterations and tuxedo rental portions of his business.

Wright noted that the store’s original owner opened at the South Main Street location in 1939. Wright’s father moved from Lafayette in 1963 to work at the clothing store. He left the store several years later to operate a local five-and-dime, but returned to the clothing store in 1968 as its new owner.

“I did chores at the store at an earlier age but started waiting on customers when I was 15. Dad taught me how to do alterations when I was 15, too. At the time I thought, ‘Why are you showing me this? But it turned out to be a blessing.”

Brian did leave the family business in 1978 for a brief time, moving to Arizona for five months to work in the landscaping industry. He returned to the area and worked for as a bricklayer’s assistant before returning to the store.
